Fit for a New Year

December 31st, 2009 by Joyce

I’m sitting in Matt’s new Honda Fit.  We bought the Fit when we realized he had been driving our 2001 Saturn SL without gear oil for, oh, who knows how long?  Ever since the babies came (and the rest of the chaos that happened after) checking the Saturn’s gear oil level had fallen low, low, […]

The next morning

December 5th, 2009 by Joyce · 2 Comments

The snow has long since melted; the sun shines on a cold so sharp it hurts.  But on the front page of the local newspaper . . . . . . is a story . . . about two kids and a snowman. (I also sighted C&D’s picture in the Chronicle’s online “Breaking News” gallery.)
